Participatory Public Culture and Youth Citizenship in the Digital Age: The Medellín Model

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

A growing body of research suggests that we are witnessing new forms of youth civic engagement and public participation, invigorated by digital technologies, practices, and cultures. This study integrates theories of participatory communication, culture, and politics to propose a framework for analyzing participatory public culture and youth engagement in the digital era. The framework is informed by several case studies in Medellín, Colombia—where youth participation has been a central concern of both state and grassroots actors—yet can be applied to other contexts to inform both theory and practice. It prompts analysis of the relationship between institutional/state and grassroots modes of participation, and whether this participation is structural or content-related. It also presents several analytical dimensions relevant to the construction of participatory public cultures, including reducing barriers to participation; creating spaces and cultures of participation; developing capacities to participate; and linking voice to influence.
